I really like Poole in Python: Oben Sonne - Blog obensonne / poole — Bitbucket

Render static blog sites from Markdown using Ghost themes: mixu/ghost-render

Very good

  • Hugo is written in Go and that should not be a problem. Has a quite a few of themes. More popular than Grav (6000 stars). Search is wiers, as this is real static-site generator.

  • Kirby is PHP but has the same problem as Grav as a folder is needed for every page. And it is not free.

  • HTMLy has a real lack of documentation.

  • Herbie is close to perfect, the only problem is German language. It has its own search functionality, but it’s file naming is very strict.

  • Pico is great (2000 stars) as is newer fork Phile which has the most flexible front-matter that I prefer. Both of them have little good showcase sites, and totaly lack search functionality.

  • Baun is successor to Pico from the same author, and is perfect in every sence, but only 200 stars. Admin panel is not free. Baun: A New Kind of PHP CMS - Gilbert Pellegrom

  • Sphido is simple and also has a logical metadata format.

  • with 4000 stars. I don’t like that we must use underscores instead of spaces in filenames. They call themselves a documentation generator.

Too wierd

Others that I looked at are or too weird or too outdated.

Edit in place
